Let's take my scenario for visibility:

What I need:
1. Run the report on Tuesday with the custom range of 5 days back and email result as an attachment
2. The result will include tapes written on the closest Saturday, Sunday and Monday ONLY
3. Profit - open the attached report to find out what tapes you need to send offsite WITHOUT ADDITIONAL EFFORT

What we have:
1. Run the report on Tuesday, not limiting the date range, email the result
2. The result will include tapes written to tapes from the moment of the job creation
3. You need to go to the report and filter it by the date of the latest restore point - this EXTRA STEP should be eliminated by customizing date range
4. Get the list of tapes

Thanks for the clarification.
So the idea is to have an option to either have data in drill-down report or explicitly in the main report and another option to shorten the data range so you can play with this 2 to get the best view for your situation.
We will take it into account, however lots of customers like Veeam for not overloading UI.
Anyway, thank you for the valuable requests!

Basically, the report named "TAPE MEDIA RETENTION PERIOD" has all the information which I need. Unfortunately, it needs additional manual filtering in Excel.

It would be nice to add the following customization features directly in Veeam ONE reporter:

1. Add custom date range selection and several presets ("Last week" at least): such feature exists in the "BACKUP JOB HISTORICAL INFORMATION" for example
2. Add a combo box which would allow you to select media pools: such feature exists in the "TAPE GFS CONFIGURATION" for example

For anyone who's interested in obtaining a list of tapes ready for offsite, this can be achieved by using PowerShell and Windows Task Scheduler. Details are in this thread https://forums.veeam.com/post235756.html#p235756.
